The Hotel Zamora's Bartender Battle is a Chopped-style contest that pits a lineup of area bartenders against each other for the chance to win a $500 cash prize.

On Sunday, Sept. 30, locals are invited to watch these cocktail maestros get crafty while whipping up specialty drinks in five minutes, using a basket of mystery ingredients and a Campari America liquor during every round.

The panel of judges will critique the concoctions until one bartender is left standing.

To participate, prospective competitors must send an email to the Zamora in advance — [email protected] — and pay a $20 entry fee.

The festivities start at 7 p.m., but stick around for the post-Battle party.
